Self Portrait
by David Wilkie

Wilkie was born in Fife, Scotland and trained in Edinburgh before moving to London in 1805.  He became one of the most successful painters during the Regency period and was much admired by George IV.  Wilkie exhibited at the Royal Academy and was inspired by Dutch and Flemish genre scenes, as depicted by Teniers and van Ostade.  From the 1820s he took the great 17th century painter Rubens as his model and studied many of the latter's sketches.  He remained a favourite of the monarch although Queen Victoria never liked his works.
